Retro is the new modern and everyone who is anyone is making the switch back to old school – vinyl that is.
I just got this 5-in-one record, CD, radio, tape, auxiliary stereo and I’m super psyched about it. I’ve discovered that I LOVE the look, feel and sound of records and I’m going to pursue them more instead of MP3s.
I purchased my very first record through Amazon.com this week: Mumford and Sons. I can’t wait to receive it! The sound can’t be beat on a CD or MP3 – I don’t care how much you try to convince me otherwise.
One thing I did notice, however, is how much more expensive vinyl is compared to CD and MP3 – I can’t believe it! I certainly won’t want to make too much of a habit of it, but perhaps I’ll dabble in it. Scoff if you will!

In celebration of Earth Day, I will remember and honor my roots. Bellingham, Washington – the hub of all things eco-friendly and natural.
Some of my fondest memories include the great outdoors of Washington. Lake Padden, Lake Whatcom, Whatcom Falls, Bellingham Bay, Lake Samish, Interurban Trail, Mount Baker and so much more. Outdoor recreation abounds. Shout out to the granolas of Fairhaven!

I do my part to nurture Mother Nature in Orange County by serving on the executive committee of the Newport Beach Chapter of Surfrider Foundation, enjoying the OC parks, trails and beaches. I reduce, reuse and recycle as a good citizen should. As a matter of fact, I recently bought a big bag of gently-used designer clothes at Laura’s House Resale Store in Lake Forest – a win for me, the charity and the environment.
Individuals can only do so much, but they should take small steps towards lessening their overall footprint so the generations to follow will have the chance to fall in love with the great outdoors too.
Check out this super fun Earth Day activity at the Muth Interpretive Center in Newport this Sunday: Earth Day at the Bay, 10 am – 4 pm.
Become a member of Surfrider Foundation to help protect our oceans, waves and beaches. Rise Above Plastics!
